Part of A345 Marlborough-Pewsey road to be closed - again?On June 11 we reported that a stretch of the A345 just south of Marlborough would be closed for five days from June 18. The work was not done - perhaps the contractors had tickets for the World Cup.
Now road signs are announcing (though the Wiltshire Council website does not mention it) that this stretch of the A345 will be closed on Friday, July 13 for two days.
The section affected is from the Manton Drove turning southwards to the top of Oare Hill.
This part of the road was closed for patching and some resurfacing in March this year.
If the situation is the same as in June, access will be maintained for residents and businesses - though some delays can be expected.
Diversions should be in place.
